My latest project is the "Steggie" sweater from I have the back and the front finished and this is a photo of the first sleeve. I have read the pattern notes on Ravelry from the other people who knit this and there were very few complaints if any. I am finding these scales a big pain in the butt. I did an entire intarsia sweater and never had any trouble with the process but these scales are another story. They are not turning out well at all. I'm sure it's just me since no one else seemed to have a problem.

The only problem that was mentioned by most people who did the sweater was that the hood design was too small and they had to modify it. I'm not thrilled about having to modify anything. That's a little intimidating for me.

All I know is that I have to get this finished fast because I have a million other projects swimming around in my head!

On abandoning the blog....

I never really meant to do it. It just happened. I guess it happened when I stopped knitting. But now I'm knitting again. I didn't stop completely really. I did the usual Christmas socks and a wrap here and there, but nothing too exciting. I have a project on the needles I'll share soon. We'll see how it goes. The tricky part starts tonight. It will be my first project with a zipper. Hmmn. I sew. I can do it. Right?

My little kiddos are growning... and # 3 is on the way. Yep.. I gotta start knitting again!
